Devotional books
The Father’s Love
are available in the back of the sanctuary or outside the church office beginning Nov 25.

The Father’s love for each and every one of us is immeasurable. And we are called to prepare to receive that love, to share it and to demonstrate it as best we can. Excerpts of Nouwen’s writings, as well as Scripture passages and original reflections and prayers within The Father’s Love, will strengthen your Advent journey. Be guided through daily prayer and reflection as you gain a better sense of how the Father loves us and why he sent his only Son to dwell among us.


Advent Devotional books
For children – Advent A to Z
are available in the back of the sanctuary or outside the church office beginning Nov 25.

Spend time each day of December praying through the alphabetical Advent poems contained in this thoughtful booklet that helps children connect the sights and sounds of the season to the coming of the Christ Child in a fun and familiar way. From Angels and Eggnog to Stars and Wreaths, these prayers by Arden Mead provide a daily guide for children of all ages as they prepare to celebrate Jesus’ birthday.
